I’m not always completely honest with my kids, and it is done in the best interests of all parties. It’s not like outright lying to them – more like faking it. These top the list:
1) I fake that I like food. Continue
Don’t get me wrong – I like food, but not the way most people seem to. For example, I would never in a million years cook myself something to eat. You see,…

The above list is not the class roster for my child’s pre-k class… nope it is a list of cousins that were born after my oldest chilld. All of these children are related to my girls, not good friends, but blood cousins. I will not even mention the five or six cousins that came before her.

50 years ago my Aunt Joan was born. Hers has not been an average life. She arrived prematurely, possibly having an unfortunate run-in with the umbilical cord on the way out. Regardless of the cause, she has had a special place in our family because she did not develop in a typical manner.
From all accounts, it was not easy in those early years. The doctors… Continue

Pregnancy and I have a love/hate relationship.
I am not one to have an easy time with pregnancy in the first
trimester. I'm the mama with her head in the toilet, the trash can, the
parking lot of Target, the random grocery bag I find lying in my car.
It's just not a pretty thing. There is no beauty, no poise, no food
left in my stomach. But it is also during this time that I am most
excited at the prospect of this new little life inside of me.

So we’ve made it to February, which is usually the time when folks have either fallen off the New Year’s resolution wagon or take a step back to assess how they are doing.
I am happy to report that I am doing great! OK, it might have something to do with the fact that I don’t really do resolutions. My theory is that I suffer enough. So, while I’m raising small kiddos, I get a resolution “free pass”. Do we mamas really need extra stress and self induced pressure?
I get that… Continue

Parents are not only there to pay for the school fee's. More importantly, they should supervise the growth and development can do this.

Cub Scouts now, Rescue Worker later
This week I was feeling a little glum. I had a few close calls with the kiddos that really threw me off my game.
One kid didn’t hold the bus buddy’s hand on the way to the bus stop the other day. She stepped onto the road but jumped back quickly when a driver honked. I spent the rest of the day feeling like I was going to puke.
The very next day, I left baby alone rolling… Continue

I am now a Mom of 2 Boys!
3 Weeks ago I gave birth to our second son, William. He's already showing his family traits too, started before he came out...because he didn't want to! Stubborn as all the rest of the males in his bloodline...
William was due on December 15th, the day came and went and on the 21st I got a call to come be induced. After a very painful labor (I wanted the epi, but because of car accident, the Dr's were unable to hook me up so I felt… Continue

My wife and I were in London recently. I tagged along on the tail end of her business trip. It was great! We hit the usual stuff: Big Ben, the British Museum, Harrod’s and Hyde Park. We also had some great date nights and awesome dinners, but I couldn’t stop thinking about our daughter. I had dropped her off with her grandparents in San Diego before heading across the pond. This was the first time I was away from her and I have to admit that it was a little difficult. I kept wondering what she… Continue

My sister Judy called last night. It has been since I lived in New York, and we were both in therapy to heal us of our non-dramatic childhoods, that we’ve spoken on the phone. I wasn’t sure if this was going to be one of those conversations that has no map and starts out tentatively to see if I’m in the mood, or if she was stalling on telling me something important, as a way of letting me know “this is important”, the way some people say, “Are you sitting down?” before they deliver big… Continue

So this baby of mine has been a chronic bronchiolitis guy. I’ve never had a bad breather so it’s all new and exciting. In fact, I’m just home from a few days in the hospital with him. Throw some pneumonia into the bronchiolitis mix and you’ve got yourself a weekend pass to paediatric paradise. Baby and I have had the pleasure of spending… Continue
